The role of the Board of Trustees is to govern the school. Every state and state-integrated school or kura in New Zealand has a board that governs it.
The board's role is to oversee the governance of its school and to ensure that everything that needs to be done gets done - legally, ethically, and as well as possible in the best interests of its students.
The board is the employer of all staff, including the principal, and sets the overall strategic direction for the school. The principal is the board's 'chief executive' and manages the day-to-day operations of the school in line with the board's direction and policies.

The Blenheim School Board of Trustees
Kellyann Thorstensen |
The Blenheim School Board is diverse and opinionated — just the way it should be! The trustees are elected by parents and caregivers as part of a checks and balances system of accountability. Make sure you vote in Board of Trustee elections so that you are heard, and please consider joining the Board of Trustees to help steer our school.
